People from a rainforest - level 3
This video shows the moment isolated native people emerge from the Amazon rainforest and make contact with the outside world.
In the video, released by Brazil's indigenous authority, the natives can be seen wearing loincloths and carrying bows and arrows.
Taken place along the banks of the Envira River, near the Peruvian border, the footage shows the men from the Panoan linguistic group interacting with local villagers of northern Brazil, and accepting bunches of bananas.
One of the villagers can be seen giving the bananas to two loincloth-clad natives who appear wary of approaching him, quickly grabbing the fruit and then retreating out of arm's reach.
Brazilian experts said the indigenous people likely crossed the border from Peru facing pressure from illegal logging and drug trafficking at home.
